Topic: Is WN Considering SGF?

Flew into MCI this morning on a WN flight from MDW. Seated next to me were 2 WN employees who told me they were Southwest Planning Analysts.
Through the course of their conversation with me they told me they would be driving to SGF once they got to MCI. Just wondering if WN may be planning on picking up SGF with this opening oup of MO to service from DAL. Any thoughts?

I rather think we'd start MCI and STL before even thinking about SGF...

No rumors on SGF that I've heard...

Maybe they were on a trip for personal reasons?

Interesting..I have heard time and time again that another MO airport is needed for WN and SGF has been mentioned. This would fit perfectly in the triangle between MCI and STL and enuff space between OKC and LIT as well, kind of a center area for the square of STL, MCI, OKC and LIT. Where would flights go to? Probably MDW, I doubt there is a huge demand for SGF-DAL. Interesting they chose MCI, as TUL is much closer to SGF then MCI is.

SGF? Really? SGF seems to small of a city for WN. They like to start with 10 flights. But then SGF is the gateway airport to Branson.

I can see it now:
Southwest Airlines: Official Airline of the Yakov Smirnoff Show in Branson!

Growing market. I think we will see more than the majors there some day.

WN would create even more demand for air travel in the Southwest MO- No Arkansas region.. Springfield has been subjected to price gouging for years. There is still quite a few people driving to STL or MCI for the cheaper fares. Plus WN would fit the tourism trade of Branson/Table Rock Lake area quite well, not to mention Lake of the Ozarks and smaller cities such as Joplin that are restricted to little or no air service at very high prices.
